Re: List of Things Batman Returns got Right/Wrong
I think the movie deserves respect for being possibly the most subversive and macabre blockbuster ever made. Can you imagine seeing this movie during summertime playing next to your typical action fare? It's not surprising at all that there was a backlash and Burton was left behind by the studio.
O Captain! My Captain! Rise up and hear the bells.
Rise up, for you the flag is flung, for you the bugle trills.
For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths, for you the shores a-crowding.
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning.
